A newly found script written by Stanley Kubrick is set to be revived as a feature film.
The salvaged story titled Lunatic At Large was found in the filmmaker’s library after his death in 1999 among two others. Producers Bruce Hendricks and Galen Walker plan to adapt the story penned by Kubrick, titled Lunatic at Large.
The details about the story are still scarce, but Variety reports it is “a film-noir thriller in keeping with other collaborations between Kubrick and screenwriter Jim Thompson.” Thompson, a pulp fiction author, worked with Kubrick on the influential film noir The Killing.
Production on Lunatic at Large is reportedly set to begin in autumn this year. “The opportunity to bring a Stanley Kubrick project to the screen after so many years is a dream come true,” Walker says in a statement. “We look forward to making a film in keeping with his unique style and vision.”
“Stanley Kubrick was an enormous influence on so many directors, and we are honored that the Kubrick Estate has entrusted us with one of his original ideas,” adds Hendricks.
